    (@jegan)


    I use WP for a CMS on my site – I will eventually do some posts for a blog or multi-part stories, but the vast majority of my site is now pages – and I can’t see how editflow really works well with pages – well, not the same way as posts. I still have people I have write copy, edit, review, etc. So there are budgets and categories, etc.

    Thanks for your advice and help.

    Hey Jason,
    Have you checked out the ways to make Edit Flow work specifically with other post types? What specifically do you need?

    Thanks,

    Daniel

    Budget report and calendar – the other meta data is there in the latest version but it’s not bubbling to the top… I do have custom post times and haven’t used them with EF yet, but I imagine they will work just as well. But in short I want to be able to manage pages just as well.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Hey Jason,
    By default, custom statuses, editorial metadata and editorial comments should show up when you’re editing pages. To have pages appear in the calendar, you’ll need to add a couple snippets of code to the functions.php file in your theme.

    First, upgrade to the latest version of Edit Flow, v0.6.4, which we released today.

    Second, add the following snippet to your functions.php file:

    function ef_add_page_support_to_calendar( $args ) {
    	add_post_type_support( 'page', 'ef_calendar' );
    }
    add_filter( 'admin_init', 'ef_add_page_support_to_calendar' );

    Unfortunately, the story budget doesn’t have great support for pages because it’s so closely tied to the concept of post categories. We hope to improve upon this in a future release.

    Hope this helps,

    Daniel

    Daniel,

    Thanks – that helps. I should have looked closer – I thought due dates were shown non the calendar as well – but editorial publishing dates are helpful… so a wish is to add deadlines to the calendar.

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately, it’s not possible currently to show the due dates on the calendar. This is definitely on our radar however… look for it possibly in v0.7

    Cheers,

    Daniel
